Graphics Objects
At the core of Mathematica's graphics language are geometrical objects, represented succinctly and efficiently by simple symbolic constructs—to which all of Mathematica's powerful symbolic programming capabilities can immediately be applied.
Point a point or list of points in 2D or 3D

Line a line joining a sequence of points in 2D or 3D
BezierCurve, BSplineCurve splined curves in 2D or 3D
JoinedCurve joined curve segments in 2D

Arrow an arrow from one point to another in 2D or 3D

Polygon a polygon in 2D or 3D
FilledCurve a filled area with curve segment boundary in 2D
GraphicsComplex a polygonal mesh or other graphics complex

Disk, Circle filled 2D disk, open 2D circle, ellipse or arc
Rectangle 2D filled rectangle

Sphere 3D sphere
Cuboid 3D cuboidal box (rectangular parallelepiped)
Cylinder, Cone cylinder, cone around a line between two points
Tube 3D tube around a line or curve
BSplineSurface 3D NURB surface
PolyhedronData geometry and properties of regular polyhedra

Raster 2D image raster

Text arbitrary text or other expressions in 2D or 3D
Inset arbitrary objects in 2D or 3D inset into a larger graphic
